DIE KRUPPS picture
Die Krupps is a German industrial band formed in 1980 by Juergen Engler and Ralf Dörper . Over the years they have produced krautrock-tinged metalbashing industrial, old-school ebm, industrial electro and, most recently, industrial metal/neue deutsche härte.

The band's name comes from the Krupp dynasty - one of pre-war Germany´s main industrial families. This name was apparently chosen for its industrial connotations, as the band is strongly anti-Nazi. In some interviews the band stated that Visconti´s movie "The Damned" - a depiction of the fictitious German industrial dynasty of the Essenbecks - was the main inspiration.

Die Krupps's debut EP, 1981's Stahlwerkssymphony, was in the vein of metal-on-metal industrial acts like Einstürzende Neubauten. Their following album, 1982's Volle Kraft Voraus, combined the industrial sound of their debut with electronic rhythms similar to DAF.

In 1984, the group released their first English-language album, Entering the Arena, which

DIE KRUPPS A Tribute to Metallica

EP · 1992 · Industrial Metal

No. No. No. No. No.

This just doesn’t work, and it shouldn’t exist.

I’m all for bands trying things from different genres, mixing ideas up and experimenting, but industrial, electronic, synth-driven versions of Metallica songs just don’t work for me.

Boring, monotone, soulless... there’re just so many negative words I could use to describe this. The vocals sound passionless. The 1992 keyboards make most of the music sound like a 90’s video game soundtrack. Oh, and that dance version of ‘One’... No. Just no...

I dunno... Maybe I’m just taking this all too seriously. Obviously, I’m a huge Metallica fan, and while I’ve dabbled in some industrial and EBM music from time to time, this just doesn’t work. Fair play to Die Krupps for trying something different, but no... I’m not having it. This is embarrassing, and not anything I’d ever want to be caught listening to.

Which won’t be an issue, as I’ll never listen to this again anyway.
